What I Wore To Donate My Hair! Foil Tees and Maxi Skirts

In case you missed it, I donated my hair! You can see how far behind I am with blogging pics as I posted the video of the big chop at the end of March, and it's mid-April and Easter this weekend! I'll be posting short hair pics from Monday, until then come see what I wore to donate my hair (or take a peek at my Instagram to see the short hair!).

What I wore:

rebecca minkoff mini mab tote bag plum purple maxi skirt | away from the blue

Necklace: Uniquely Made with Love Sea Change necklace
TeeJeanswest Anika foil stripe tee in white and silver
SkirtJeanswest Luxe jersey maxi skirt
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote in plum (on sale!)

Why I wore it:

I wore this a few days before I donated my hair. I had the day off to sit that big exam I've mentioned a couple of times. My day was full of studying before logging on to do the test remotely in the afternoon. It was something I needed to be fully dressed for as obviously you are monitored when taking the exam. I had to give the person who was monitoring me for the exam a webcam tour of the entire room and the table I had my computer on, twisting and turning my laptop around. It would have been funnier if I wasn't so stressed about the exam, haha! Especially when I was told my flowers and candle were not allowed on the desk, nothing but my computer and mouse.

Luckily, I passed the exam and have a new work certification to my name! Since most of the day I was home by myself I felt brave enough to wear a white tee without worrying about getting it dirty, this foil one deserves a bit more love as it was a while since it was last worn.

I added the purple mini MAB tote bag for a touch of colour with the black and white and because I didn't need much to do the daycare pick up and drop off.


Last worn: striped foil print tee, blue beaded necklace, black drawstring waist maxi skirt, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff mini MAB tote bag.

Why I wore it:

Since I liked the foil tee and maxi skirt combo above, despite the stressful day, I decided to wear a similar outfit again when I went to donate my hair. With some colourful accessories again, including a big statement necklace.

My bestie had grown her hair for two years and donated it, so I decided to do the same! And it's funny, it was about 2 years ago I shared that's what I was going to do!

You can see more in the video - including my reactions to the first cut - but we managed to donate 38cm of hair to Variety to be made into wigs for kids with cancer. Big thanks to Steph at Snippitz hairdresser at Marsden Park for doing the big cut and styling my very short locks afterwards! A special thank you to one of Steph's loyal customers who surprised me and paid for my haircut as their donation to the cause too.

You can find out more about donating your hair (or a monetary donation) on the Variety website.

Foil Print Tees Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A foil print tee is a fun alternative to a plain tee, adding just a little extra sparkle and interest. Of course you can add further interest to your outfit with bold and bright accessories as well.

Hope you enjoyed the video! Looking forward to sharing my new shorter haircut on the blog next week. Have a happy Easter!

Olive Embroidered Pieces: Tanks and Soft Shorts

Making the most of the autumn heatwave where it felt like summer just a few weeks ago and wearing some more tanks and soft shorts outfits. I picked these green tanks to wear after seeing a post on Jodie's blog about wearing different shades of green, and realised these tanks were overdue a wear.

What I wore:


olive embroidered tank, printed culotte shorts, rebecca minkoff camera bag heatwave mum style | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue instagram olive embroidered tank, black printed shorts, rebecca minkoff camera bag
Tank: Target embroidered khaki tank
ShortsJeanswest Parker printed shirred short
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

I had thought about wearing a kimono with this outfit, but when it was 39 degrees (102 Fahrenheit) I decided to keep it simple with just the tank and soft shorts. Spent one of my usual days with the boys, attending the playground and library in the morning and trying to fit in a few errands too. We didn't spend long at the playground though due to the heat!

This olive embroidered tank was a complete impulse buy from the Target sale rack a couple of years ago and every time I wear it I'm grateful to my past self for picking it up! It worked perfectly for breastfeeding, the long loose style letting me pull it up on one side while still keeping my belly covered. And on a hot day the loose flowing fabric was perfectly cool.

Paired with some light shorts and then the rose gold sandals to match the gold hardware on the Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag, perfect outfit.


Last worn: olive embroidered tank, black printed shorts, rose gold sandals, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

ShortsJeanswest Tessa olive embroidered shorts
ShoesConverse Chuck Taylor All Star low in white
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

This was the outfit that came to mind when talking with Jodie in the comments of her blog post, about trying two green pieces together. I thought this striped tank would be a nice match with the olive embroidered shorts. I was surprised when I put the two together and realised the tank wasn't as olive as I'd thought, more of a khaki! I decided to try it anyway, but at the last minute added a bit of brightness to all the neutrals with the plain white kimono.

I have a lot of kimonos in my collection, and this plain white one comes in helpful when I can't decide what printed one to wear, as it goes with everything! It came in helpful at the playground too for a bit of a blocker against the mozzies, they have been particularly bad in the Bayside lately!

Again I stuck with the Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag, the tan is a nice neutral with the olive tones. Picked closed in shoes as it was a little cooler, and Converse are so comfortable for running around the playground with the boys.


Last worn: white crochet kimono, navy and gold tassel necklace, green and grey striped tank, olive embroidered shorts, Converse, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag (above).

Other ways to wearwhite crochet kimono and printed shorts, green and grey striped tank and skinny jeans, olive embroidered shorts and printed scarf, Converse and printed dress, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and maxi skirt.

Perfect for pregnancygreen and grey striped tank in second trimester, Converse in second trimester.


Olive Embroidered Pieces Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

I find green a tricky colour to wear, but olive is a nice neutral! You can play it safe like I have in the first outfit by wearing it with other neutrals, black and tan and gold all work nicely. If you're feeling more adventurous, you can branch out a little more and try two green pieces together like I have in the second outfit with the olive embroidered shorts, for something a little different.

Printed Maxi Dresses, Rebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag

This little tan Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag was a Christmas gift and I'm thrilled with how well it works in my wardrobe. It's the perfect neutral cross body bag to wear with a lot of colour and print, as I'm wearing it here with two printed maxi dresses.

What I wore:

Necklace: blush pink and gold beaded tassel necklace
DressJeanswest Sophia high-low maxi dress
ShoesWittner 'Jasmarie' studded sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

Cooper posing in these pics makes me giggle! I actually wore this quite a few weeks ago, back in February! Decided to wear this pretty maxi dress for a day out shopping with my sister and the boys. My sister had a lot of gift cards to spend after Christmas, as did I, so we spent some time checking out a few different stores. As much as you can with two little boys under 5! I'd taken them to the playground before to tire them out a bit, but it was still a tricky endeavour managing to shop. I did do a little shopping though, and picked up this tee at Jeanswest.

Jeanswest was one of our last stops as the boys were ready for a nap! Luckily the staff found their overtired antics amusing, and gave them some stickers which they were thrilled with. Was a really fun day.

Not the first time I've worn this maxi dress with a tassel necklace, I really love the look! I thing the blush one worked so nicely with it. While the Rebecca Minkoff camera bag doesn't match the sandals exactly, they are similar enough that I liked the combination.


Last worn: printed maxi dress, blush tassel necklace, studded sandals, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag.

Other ways to wearprinted maxi dress on Christmas day, studded sandals and shorts, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and maxi skirt.

Necklace: Kmart rose gold and pink beaded necklace
Dress: Kmart Tropicana sleeveless tiered maxi dress
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff MAB Camera Bag in almond

Why I wore it:

Again an outfit from a while ago. It was a little windy on the day I wore this, my dress seems to be hiding Cooper! With the possibility of Cyclone Oma hitting on the weekend, I took the boys out for a morning in the playground to burn off some energy. Just a simple dress as it was a hot day despite the breeze.

After some time at the playground we headed to the shops to stock up on some snacks, just in case we were stuck inside all weekend. Luckily the cyclone blew back out to sea quite quickly and there were no major impacts.

Again I paired this neutral cross body MAB camera bag with the colourful printed maxi dress, it's a good combination even if this dress has a different mix of colour and print than the one above.


Last worn: tropical print tiered maxi dress, gold and blush beaded necklace, gold sandals, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag (above).

Other ways to weartropical print tiered maxi dress under a tee, gold sandals and tee dress, Rebecca Minkoff MAB camera bag and printed shorts.




Printed Maxi Dresses Under $50:




The first printed maxi dress that I'm wearing above is actually on sale for $41 at the moment, the price is wrong here.

How You Can Wear It:

A fun, colourful printed maxi dress is so easy to wear when you pick neutral accessories to wear with it. A tan cross body bag like this MAB camera bag works well with any colour or print.

V-Neck Tees, Printed Kimonos and Mini MAC Bags: SAHM Style

Kimonos aren't just summer pieces for me. I like to wear them in spring and autumn too! They just add an extra level of interest to an otherwise plain shorts and tee outfit. With the outfits below, I picked a kimono where the print matched the colour of the tee I was wearing. You know I like a little matchy-matchy!

What I wore:

Why I wore it:

It's not the first time I've worn this aquamarine bag with purple, I really like the combination. It was the perfect accessory to pair with the purple v-neck tee and the purple floral kimono.

Busy morning with a few errands to run and a quick dentist appointment for toddler T before his swimming lessons. He did really well, helped I'm sure by the fact that they were playing Paw Patrol on the TV in the ceiling, he just laid back and watched the show the whole time, haha!

Why I wore it:

Another day with the kids trying to run errands meant another simple outfit was needed. When I got this coral tee home after picking it up in the sales, I knew I had to try this outfit combination with it, and wore it just a couple days after buying the tee. The bright coral colour was such a good match for the orangey reds in the print of this Kindness collective kimono! Such a winning combination paired together.

While it wasn't a very exciting day, I did love wearing this outfit and I am sure to try pairing this coral tee and the printed kimono together again soon! Such a fun bit of matchy-matchy-ness!

Stuck with silver for the accessories, with the silver pendant necklace and Rebecca Minkoff mini MAC bag to be a balancing neutral for all the colour and print.

How You Can Wear It:

Shorts and a tee is such a staple outfit. To add a little extra interest to your outfit, you can put a fun printed kimono on top. It's a nice way to change up the look of a shorts and tee outfit without much fuss. If you're unsure, you can always pick a kimono with a print that matches the colour of the tee you're wearing for an easy, cohesive look.

Plain Tees, Floral Kimonos and Denim Shorts With Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC Bags

You can't beat denim and a kimono for an easy mum outfit. It's autumn and I'm still posting denim shorts outfits! Partly because I have a backlog of outfit pics (I post 6 outfits a week so I can have a day 'off' but sometimes I take a pic every day), partly because autumn officially starts on the first of March but it often takes Brisbane weather a little while to catch up! One of the benefits of living in a tropical climate. 🌞

TeeJeanswest black scoop neck tee

Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff mini MAC in aquamarine with python embossed leather

Why I wore it:

Unlike the last time I wore this kimono, I didn't need it for sun protection! I was studying for my big exam and feeling the pressure with a few days to go. With the humidity and threat of further rain, I decided to take them indoors and we headed to the local McDonald's playground! I was suitably sugared up for studying with a massive hot chocolate as the boys played in the playground. We ended up having lunch there too before heading home.

The longer sleeves on this kimono worked perfectly for spending a couple of hours in the aircon studying. It adds a fun touch of colour with the black tee too, and I think the magenta worked so nicely with the turquoise bag and necklace. I just had to match the necklace and bag together, you know I love a bit of machy-matchy.

BagRebecca Minkoff neon pink mini MAC

Why I wore it:

Again with the same necklace! Although I didn't match it to my bag this time.

Just like the last time I wore this olive tee and these black denim shorts together, I felt I needed to add a little something. Last time I added a light scarf for an extra colour and print, this time around I stuck with the navy colour but picked this pretty floral kimono instead. It's such a fun one to wear, the cocoon style is like being wrapped up in a big hug!

With the pink in the floral print, this neon pink mini MAC bag seemed like a good choice, and it really pops with the navy, olive and black neutrals.

Just a normal quiet weekend, grocery shopping and swimming lessons, before trying to get more study in in the afternoon when the boys were at the park with their dad.

Floral Kimonos Under $50:





How You Can Wear It:

A floral kimono is a fun way to add a little extra colour or interest to an otherwise plain jeans and tee outfit. You can match your accessories to the colours in the print like in the second outfit, or pick a completely different colour like in the first outfit, to add even more colour.

Denim Shorts, Kimonos and Rebecca Minkoff Edie Cross Body Bag In Magenta

Although it's autumn in Brisbane, summer outfits can continue for a while before the really cold weather arrives! Simple tanks, printed kimonos and shorts with a cute colourful Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag are such easy stay at home mum outfits.

What I wore:

Tank: MEV Britney bubble tank in mood indigo C/O
Shortsthrifted Jeanswest distressed denim shorts
Shoesblack slim Havaianas thongs
BagRebecca Minkoff Edie small crossbody bag in magenta

Why I wore it:

I really liked this outfit, I thought all of the colours worked so well together. While the dominant colour in this printed kimono is purple, it has a bunch of other colours in it. I couldn't resist adding more colour with this magenta Rebecca Minkoff Edie cross body bag. A neutral navy tank and blue denim shorts were an easy pairing with the rest of the colour. And then a blush necklace, for another little extra touch of colour.

Just a quiet day, doing the daycare drop off and pickup and working from home, before taking my son to an appointment in the afternoon. Such a comfortable outfit for that. I did wish I had picked a different tank in the afternoon heat though - this one is an old breastfeeding one, it's layered with hidden access for breastfeeding and on a hot day layered tops are not the best! Such a cute basic tank though, I'm still keeping it around long after finishing breastfeeding as you wouldn't know just by looking at it that it's a special piece.


Last worn: blush tassel necklace, purple printed kimono, navy tank, boyfriend denim shorts, Havaianas, Rebecca Minkoff Edie bag.

Why I wore it:

Another outfit with the same formula! A metallic tank this time, black denim shorts and a navy printed kimono. Again with the same magenta Rebecca Minkoff small Edie bag as, just like in the first outfit, I love how the magenta works with navy.

Didn't like this outfit as much as the one above though - even with swapping the Havaianas for studded sandals, this outfit just felt a bit plain. Was nice and simple for a day with the kids though, doing our usual playground and library routine with a couple of errands to run too.

Printed Tanks, Maxi Skirts and Red Rebecca Minkoff Saddle Bag

While I have been trying to remove duplicate things from my wardrobe, I could not resist picking up another black maxi skirt for $1 in the opshop. So now I have two black maxi skirts! I love wearing maxi skirts though and think they are both different enough to justify keeping them.

A nice plain maxi skirt means you can wear it with a fun printed top, and add some extra colour with accessories like this red Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag.

What I wore:


printed rainbow tank with red rebecca minkoff saddle bag maxi skirt gold sandals | awayfromblue

Rebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red | awayfromtheblue

awayfromblue Instagram | windy outfit pic outtake printed tank black maxi skirt
Necklace: Kmart gold and navy beaded necklace
Tank: thrifted Target mixed print colourful printed tank
SkirtJeanswest Luxe jersey maxi skirt
ShoesNovo Tawny rose gold sandals
BagRebecca Minkoff unlined saddle bag in cherry red (on sale in blue!)

Why I wore it:

Such a windy day when I wore this! It was tricky getting a good photo with the breeze blowing my hair and skirt around. It was so nice having some breeze though as it had been another hot and humid week.

Pretty quiet day so just needed a simple outfit. Swim lessons and some errands to run before catching up with friends in the evening.

With the mixed print in this top and all the colours, a neutral black skirt was an obvious pairing. I couldn't resist matching the red in the top with this Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag. I just love the way this bag looks with maxi skirts, it's a frequently worn combo.


Last worn: mixed print tank, navy and gold bead necklace, black drawstring maxi skirt, gold sandals, Rebecca Minkoff saddle bag.

Why I wore it:

Another windy day, another maxi skirt and printed tank outfit. This time I went overboard with the red, adding this red flat beaded necklace to my outfit to match the red saddle bag. I thought it would be nice to wear the skirt and necklace together, after I thrifted them both at the same time!

Another quiet day. Some time at the playground, a doctors appointment and a quick grocery shop. This maxi skirt was so nice to wear on such a hot but windy day, it flapped around a lot and kept me cool.

Black Maxi Skirts Under $50:




How You Can Wear It:

A black maxi skirt is a wardrobe staple, especially if you need something to provide sun coverage or modesty coverage on your legs while running around at the playground in summer! They are so easy to wear with fun printed tanks, or bold accessories, to add a little extra colour and interest to your outfit.
